I was just wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions for a racquet that is similar to the k surge? A buddy of mine has been playing with it for a while and really likes the feel, but doesnt like the weight. Ideally looking for a racquet that is a bit heavier with a relatively close stiffness. Thanks guys

If you click on the Ksurge on the TW website it brings up a bunch of racquets that are similar below the main pic. This is probably a good starting point.

If the weight is the main issue and he likes everything else, he should really try adding lead tape to the racquet in balanced manner. It is very cheap and might save him from having to buy a new racquet.

I would suggest the nPro Open. It is heavier but shares many of the other traits of the KSurge. Plus, it is a good deal right now.

I've tried the tennis warehouse thing, it doesnt bring up anything quite the same. Might try the lead tape though. If he hits really flat, any suggestions to where he might want to place the lead tape?

Either lead it up or try the nPro/kPro. Friend is also using the surge and wants something more stable. He basically leaded it to kPro specs

If you want to keep the balance the same you can add the lead to the throat of the racquet or 6 o'clock position depending where the balance point is located. Alternatively you can add it to the head like at 3 and 9 o'clock and counterbalance that with lead in the handle. Basically you have experiment with it until you get what you want.

You can read a little about it here.
